(Information below credited to the Crayola Factory)
At The Crayola FACTORY, you’ll be immersed in color and creativity – a place where there's no limitation to creativity and imagination. You can color, draw, paint and create with the latest Crayola products without the worry of cleanup afterwards. Each creative space invites you to play and explore while learning and having lots and lots of fun. See how Crayola Crayons and Markers are made. Learn about the history of the Crayola brand. Explore dozens of interactive projects and activities. This is not the real manufacturing plant, but instead a visitor center that allows the child inside each person to unleash its creative spirit. Each quarter, themes and projects change, giving visitors a variety of projects to create throughout the year.

Our Experience at The Crayola Factory
When you arrive at the Crayola Factory at Two River's Landing in the Center of Easton Pennsylvania, the magic and creativity that is "Crayola", is in the air. Our visit started with the Crayola Crayon making demonstration. As we sat and watched the gentleman behind the glass make 1200 red crayons, my son remarked "WOW, it's just like Sesame Street"  referring to the popular episode in which the Crayola Factory was featured. The awe inspiring fun didn't stop there! We continued on through the various hands on exhibits where we had the chance to experience a variety of Crayola products, while creating different art projects at each station. We sat as a family around the Crayola Color Carousel; The World's Largest Crayon Caddy (pictured below), where even my husband and myself joined in on the coloring fun. The projects were imaginative & inspiring for the kids - they loved all of the activities, and that they got to bring their creations home ( they are special souvenirs to remember their day by). B & L's favorite activity involved drawing a underwater scene ( glitter crayons were involved, and the princess can never get enough glitter), and finishing the picture off with bubble wrap paint "stamps" which created a beautiful water effect. We then got to send their creations through a drying machine which dried the paintings in about 2 minutes ( B was impressed with the drying machine:) All in all? FABULOUS DAY OUT WITH THE KIDS! I would highly recommend a trip to the Crayola Factory this summer! While inspiring your children's creativity..... wonderful family memories are sure to be made.
